    This is probably a dumb question but how the hell do you post on this? I can only seem to able to comment on other posts and I can't seem to make my own post about anything.
    Thanks
    EDIT: I think i have found out

    Does anybody know if white sheep leather is still up and running? When I try to contact them through the website I get an error (same when i try and log-in). I am interested in The K jacket but the fur is way off the screen used jacket so I have been trying to contact them, I sent a couple emails asking about this and got no response. Are they still active!?

    I always speak to them on Facebook/messenger where they are very responsive and still seem to be active as usual

    I apologize if this isn't the right place for this, but here's my WIP of Officer K and my girlfriend Steph as Joi. I need to re-wax my Zlurpo (using otter wax, this is one bar's worth, I ordered half a pint and will try a paint brush), Steph is still hunting for the accurate skirt material for Joi. All the research and work on our costumes have been possible because of this thread, so a huge thank you to you all! I also ended up getting the Pratt and Hart leather thin unlined police search duty gloves. They do not have the split at the bottom like the screen used ones but the alternative would've had a different pattern on top. If I find something closer I'll probably grab'em.

    What technique are you using? I used the wax bar first ans then the fabric dressing (both from Otter) It was way too much wax and now I'm slowly removing it with paper towels between the coat and a hot iron.

    Hi

    i'll be using the Barbour thorn proofing wax ... basically heat the wax ... apply then heat the whole jacket to get the wax to evenly spread out into the fabric ...

    I think the fabric dressing on top of the wax might be too much as you've said. As i understand it the dressing is usually lighter and for tightly woven lighter fabric. the thornproof and Otter Bar seems to be better for cotton style jackets ..Was the dressing you used a spray by chance such as Nickwax? waterproof dressing and waxes I've always assumed to be mutually exclusive to a degree.

    I have four wax jackets total .. all barbour but as an example lets take two jackets .. my Department B Heritage and the Steve McQueen in the heavy cotton .. the heritage is slightly lighter and closer weave so it gets a bit of a shine ... the McQueen does not as its heavier cotton.

    As you can see below the heavier the cotton the less shine .. the lighter more fine thread and weave jackets are generally super shiny ... if i can get somewhere between the Heritage and the McQueen as a look i'll be more than happy .. it will add weight and character to the jacket ... I could wax the McQueen jacket to within an inch of its life but it will just soak in more and more wax .. its just the weight of the material which dictates the end result.

    Heritage


    McQueen


    Example of a lighter close weave Barbour waxed .. and very shiney

    That makes sense about the density of the weave. I used the can and heated it in a pot of water. Very messy! One more round of iron/paper towels and it should be back to normal.

    Yeah applying it can be a pain .. its a slow meticulous thing .. looks totally like you've messed up when you finish but using a hairdryer or throwing it in a tumble drier for 10 mins lets the wax go liquid again and get into the fibres .. totally evens out the look

    Maybe the "key" it would have been on make the jackets with a soften / tight weave of cotton.

    Does anyone have any pics or information comparing the Zlurpo K Coat to the Magnoli K Coat? I have the Zlurpo (it's awesome) but the pre-waxed (I think that's correct) cotton from Magnoli looks great. Has anyone seen the two coats in person?
